with lance armstrong? >> well, i think the thing that's been unanswered that lance armstrong needs to do is am i human? do i have a heart in my chest? do i have actual warm blood coursing through my veins? this was a disaster of both form and content. in terms of form, lance armstrong came across as being cold, calculating, emotionless, particularly when he spoke about the lives that he has affected and the lives he has hurt. in terms of content, i mean, this was the part that really floored me. i thought beforehand, lance armstrong had a difficult task because he needed to do two things simultaneously. he needed to show the united states anti-doping agency that he was willing to play ball with them, that he was willing to be repentant. and he needed to get across to the american people that he felt sorry, that he felt bad about what he did in order to restore his reputation. he really did neither of those things. he rejected the core of the anti-doping agency report that he bullied other riders into doping. that he led a ring of bikers who doped in the sport. yet, at the same time, he a

's not like we didn't see this coming for a long time. lance armstrong's cheating and deceptions had been testified to for years but lance armstrong was no ordinary cheat, no fourth outfielder looking for a little extra power or linebacker hoping for some extra muscle. no, lance armstrong was an international hero. a seven time-tour de france winner, the usain bolt of his short. not to mention a public face in the fight against cancer. yet in his confessional last night with oprah, he confessed only what was obvious to anyone who wanted to see it, that he doped throughout his cycling career. but armstrong did not admit to cheating, denied he was a doping ringleader, didn't admitting to bullying and seemed emotionally incapable of sympathy for the people whose lives he ruined and money he took when they tried to do nothing more than tell the truth about what he had done. joining me the daily beast's buzz bissinger and sports editor for the nation dave xi ren. bus, in august of 2012, just five months ago, you wrote a cover story for "newsweek" entitled "i still believe in lance armstrong" a

parallels lance armstrong in a way. if the young man, again, 21 years old, is lying and he is the source of the fraud, that enters into all kinds of other areas because he is a big star and his commercial appeal being the object of sympathy, obviously rose. now, he wasn't in a position like armstrong was to take advantage of it monetarily. armstrong entered into contracts over fraud and is he in big trouble. but mr. at a owe mr. manti would be in trouble. >> his stock is plummeting right now. first round pick he may drop well down below that into the second round. we he may have to wait for a lot of these answers. there is is a teammate this afternoon has come out and said he played up this entire tragic story that they all knew this wasn't his girlfriend and he played this up to his all american side. so, if that's the case, and more teammates will come forward and others will come forward, this is really going to unravel. >> bill: all right. because you have to understand that the player te'o was in contention for the heisman trophy and by doing something like this and getting sympathy

miss to lance armstrong. you know, it's bad enough he's now admitted to the whole range of doping and for all seven of his tours. but, this is also about the number of people who he ruthlessly destroyed who made claims against him shall the degree to which he used his cancer survivalism to shield himself from this and then, the fact that he didn't even apologize to people face-to-face and had to go on to the church of oprah to do it. this is a study in shamefulness.
and the amazing back story they can. it's just a disgrace. this comes after lance armstrong, which is different. that was true illegal activit activity. but why this guy was so invested in the story and have to continue it even after he knew it was a hoax is just inexplicable to me. >> bret: tucker? >> it's explicable if it's part of publicity campaign designed to gen up publicity prior to winning the heisman. not saying is it but that would make sense considering the sports coverage is not just about the story itself but the back story. not a long jumper but a survivor. she came this far. we learn so much about the lives of the athletes and all of this is designed to make us sympathize with them personally. he spoke about the death of the girlfriend. i don't think we ought to assume it was a woman who supposedly died the same day as his grandmother and that means he sympathetic victim. he could be the victim of the hoax and also a perpetrator. this is checkable but the point is nobody checked it. many sports reporters doesed a latory journalism that doesn't contain checking. it's designed to c
